Hello All
Lots of topics on ipad games, but not much on android tablet.
Has anybody found and tested nice games? Boardgames adapted on android? And of course, wargames?

The only i have tested is Catan, which i recommend.fits the tablet screen, nice look and gameplay.

I insist: android tablet, not phone.

Thanks!

There are several others too:

Ancients:
A Brief history of Rome = Paid. Grand strategy Roman empire.

American Civil War:
Conflicts: American Civil War = Paid. Strategy hex game based in Southern states.

WW2 North Africa:
Rommel in Africa = Paid and free demo version. Hex based scenarios, such as Crusader or El Alamein.

WW2 Eastern Front
Conflicts: Operation Barbarossa = Paid and free demo version. Hex based grand strategy of whole war.
German Eagle vs Russian Bear = Free. Hex based grand strategy of whole war, or scenarios.
Barbarossa Android = 50p. First ever Android wargame (by me) = conversion of Barbarossa solitaire .

WW2 Western Front:
Conflicts: D-day = Paid only grand strategy hex game in same conflicts series as Operation Barbarossa.
Conflicts: Battle of Bulge = Paid hex version of this battle.
There is also a Conflicts: Panzer missions, which is also hex game in same series as others.

WW2 Other:
Yugoslavia 1941: Free hex version of Unternehmung 25: V-Mail Postcard Game #2 Axis invasion of Yugoslavia in 1941.

I am personally working on some more: Waterloo (similar in style to Quatre Bras), a version of ACW Solitaire, a hex based game of the Arab-Israeli wars from 1948-73+

This thread is kind of old at this point, but here is a post-apocalyptic game that's in development, which combines a tabletop wargame with an Android companion app. Lands of Ruin: http://landsofruin.com

Is this what you were looking for?
